The Paper Cut

Samantha Valdez
Samantha Valdez is a junior at Sahuaro High School and this is her second year in The Paper Cut. She absolutely loves all animals, especially horses.  They have been in her life since a very early age and right now she owns two mares who recently each had foals. Her goal is to become a vet, then later specialize in equines. She has two younger sisters who she loves.  On her free time she loves to go to Mexico to visit her family, and try every single taco stand around.
